No solids for a few days

A few days ago, due to the doctor's instructions, I had to spend a bit more than a day without eating anything solid. They had me on clear liquids and water.
While for me it was because of a medical order. I know some people like to do fasting or liquid-only days to detox their bodies, so that made me curious.


Have you guys ever gone a day or more without eating solids? Was it by choice?
Do you guys think there's a benefit to do this once in a while?

Yes I used to fast regularly but havent done it for a long time. For me it was religious and not medical

We fast with a purpose monthly at my church. Can't say I always make that commitment though.

Due to medical issues I went for 13 days without solid foods.

When I was in the hospital for my surgeries I had a feeding tube down my nose to my stomach the first time and my stomach didn't like it so I had them stop and then just had them feed me nothing for a couple days. I wans't hungry at all because my stomach was bothering me so much. The other two surgeries though left me starving and I was on a liquid diet until they could see that I could swallow well enough to handle real food. That was so hard on me.

I hope you get through this well, Kaynil!
